Visit the courtyard of the Gadagne Museums for the exposition of the Europa League trophy.
The Europa League trophy exposed in the Gadagne Museums courtyard
The Football Europa League trophy is exposed in the courtyard of the Gadagne Museums from until May 15th, until the Europa League finale on May 16th in Groupama Stadium.
The Europa League finale is the first European final game held in Lyon since 1986.
The trophy of the second most prestigious European soccer competition was delivered to Lyon by Eric Abidal, former Olympique Lyonnais player and ambassador to the Europa League.
Free access to the trophy is permitted until the finale, from 11am to 6:30pm on Wednesdays to Sundays.
The trophy is supposed to leave the Gadagne Museums for two days, on April 19th and 20th, to be part of many animations across Lyon. It will briefly visit the football stadium of Chassieu and Décines before heading to the Gerland sporting complex for a day with around 700 kids.
The Gadagne Museums to explore Lyon’s heritage
The Gadagne Museums held an exposition « Divinement foot ! » in 2016, as part of the UEFA European Cup in France. The exposition presented the global history of the soccer, and more particularly its footprint to the city of Lyon and its inhabitants.
Located in the Old Town of St-Jean, in the 5th arrondissement of Lyon, the Gadagne Museums comprise two museums within a Renaissance-inspired building : the Historical Museum of Lyon and the newly refreshed Museum of Puppetry Art.
Feel free to use the trip to see the Europa League trophy in the main courtyard to explore the museums and the cultural heritage of Lyon.
Only one ticket is needed for the Historical Museum of Lyon, the Museum of Puppetry Art, and temporary exhibitions, between 4€ to 6€ (6€ to 8€ for temporary exhibitions).
